The Hofburg Palace has been the home to the Austrian President for over five hundred years, real estate of the various dukes, kings and emperors as well as today housing the President of the Republic of Austria. The Hofburg Palace was used by the Habsburg family as their winter house with the similarly outstanding Schonbrunn Palace being used throughout the summer season.

The oldest continually used part of the Hofburg Palace, the Schweizerhof, was built in the early Sixteenth century and is where you’ll find the gothic Bergkapelle and the Royal Treasury; the Schatzkammer. The Imperial Library, at first a standalone building, is one of the most vital parts of the Hofburg Palace for its creative value.

The Augustinian Wing is among the most popular sections of the palace for Austrian visitors due to it being the place of the St. Augustine Church where the Emperor Franz Joseph and Sisi were wed.
